Kiss tabs

Shandi bass tab

SHANDI (from the KISS CD "UNMASKED")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Standard tuning

Comments: Medium tempo ballad time. Not sure that Gene played on this one.
There are relatively few of his trademark moves. It is a good bassline
though. Supportive without being too mundane and with some slight variations
to spice things up. The strange thing is in the chorus where the bass plays
a G# over what appears to be a B-chord played by the acoustic guitar. It
is doubly hard to tell what the chord as a whole actually is since the
overdriven guitar plays a little thing that could easily be both G#(m) and
B. (But, a G#m doesnĄt seem to sound right when played by the acoustic.)


Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
